    A70 Glenbuck Road Closure June 2019

    Thu, 23 May 2019

    As part of the on going works on the A70 Glenbuck Road Realignment it will be necessary to close the A70 road at Glenbuck Loch from Monday 17th to Sunday 30th June 2019 to complete the tie in of the new section of road to the existing road. The closure is necessary for safety of the travelling public and the workforce and to allow this section of work to be completed as quickly as possible. On completion of this road closure the new section of road will be open to the travelling public.

    The diversion route, which will be signed, will be via the B743 to Strathaven,  A71 to roundabout  east of Stonehouse then B7078 south via Blackwood and Lesmahagow to roundabout junction with the A70 and rejoin A70 route.  Traffic from the east will be diverted along the same route in reverse.
